Is the Pack Ready For Atlanta?
Clearly Atlanta Wasn't Ready For the Bucks!
Just to show how fair weather the ATL is, I love the fact that they're urging fans to get into their seats early at the Georgia Dome...just to make sure the Packers fans don't take over the place.
Fair weather is the key phrase, because the bad weather in Atlanta already wiped out the first Wisconsin invasion of Atlanta...love Andrew Bogut's tweet saying "a little ice and snow cancelled our game in the Atl? Really? If that's the case the Bucks would have about 20 games a season cancelled #let's play!"
So let's dust off a few predictions from the dust bin: I ran across an old story dated May 26 from the Green Bay Press Gazette titled "Flexibility on defense important, according to Capers." How prophetic is that! The Packers have had more injuries on defense...more players placed on season ending injured reserve on that side of the ball, yet Dom and his D have allowed just a little more than 10 points per game on average, over the past 10 games.
If you didn't have the Packers winning the NFC North, a number of other people had the Packers going 9-7. I had the Pack at 10-6 and making the postseason. You know what they say about a squirrel and a nut on occasion...
The Bleacher Report said Aaron Rodgers would sweep Brett Favre. The view from the bleachers, pretty good.
Now for the strange: On August 19th, a group of German researchers picked the Pack for the Super Bowl. I have no idea if their scientific findings are solid.
And now for the really bad: Athlon's picked the Vikings to win the NFC and lose to the Ravens in the Super Bowl. The best I can say is that they might have half of that right...but the Vikings couldn't even win the division. In fact, they finished last in the NFC North.
